Denver Acupuncture Treatment and QiGong
Traditional Chinese Medicine, or simply referred to as TCM is an umbrella term
that refers to not only treatments and procedures used to treat medical
conditions, but also the dietary, lifestyle, and nutritional habits based on

medical approach because it is comprised of various nutritional and medical
procedures, treatments, traditions, as well as lifestyle.
One of the practices considered as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine is
acupuncture, which involves the insertion of needles into different parts of the
body for the purposes of healing, pain and stress relief, and medical treatment.
According to TCM beliefs, illnesses are caused by external obstructions that

acupuncture practitioner to remove items of clothing depending on the condition
